The reconnaissance plane, together with two fighters, flew over the coast of Romania, after which, moving with the transponders turned off, they flew towards the Russian border, towards the Crimean peninsula. About 100 km from him, the planes turned around. An Airbus KC2 Voyager tanker with the call sign RRR9954 was on duty in the sky over Romania at the time.
It was previously reported that a reconnaissance plane and NATO fighters were approaching the area of the special operation. The Boeing RC-135W Rivet Joint was first seen over Finnish territory: it flew along the border and made several circles near Saint Petersburg. As the media suggests, this may be due to the laws on the country’s accession to NATO.
